NJ Governor Chris Christie had high praise for President Obama this morning, saying he deserves "great credit" for his response to the disaster in New Jersey:

The president has been all over this, and he deserves great credit,” Christie said. “He gave me his number at the White House and told me to call him if I needed anything, and he absolutely means it. It’s been very good working with the president and his administration. It’s been wonderful.”

President Obama and the governor spoke three times on Monday, Christie stated.

He asked me what I needed. I said if he could expedite the Major Disaster Declaration without all the normal FEMA mumbo-jumbo. He got right on it,” added Christie. “I got a call from FEMA at 2 a.m…and then this morning I understand he signed the Major Disaster Declaration for New Jersey.”

Commander-in-chief we can respect.

I must say, Hurricane Sandy has brought out a lot of the good in people.

And I'm enchanted by interpreter Lydia Calas.

I love that they are working so well together!
